Short history about Run for Hope:

The idea of running of hope originated in 2008, when Franciscan brothers and brother Benediktas decided to realize a project to create an information and aid centre in Klaipeda for West Lithuanian oncological patients.

Then a marathon „Run of Hope“ was decided to be held in Klaipeda. During this project all funds were put in a construction of the centre.
